happy thursday my lovelies ❤ how are you all doing? honestly, i can’t wait until this week is over haha! just two more days of work, yay! 🙂
since i haven’t done a tag in a while (i think, my brain is just not working right now), i thought it’s time to catch up on some tags 🙂 and i decided to do the “currently reading tag”. the wonderful and amazing destiny over @howling libraries tagged me to do it and yepp, i am doing it! please go check out her blog, because she is aaaawesome!! ❤
1.) how many books do you usually read at once?
definitely three or more books. i always have an audiobook, a classic, a novel and sometimes an ebook.
2.) if you’re reading more than one book at a time, how do you decide when to switch books?
i listen to my audiobook when i am walking or cleaning the apartment, which is way more fun that way. i mostly read one classic per month. so i divide the chapters and then do my daily reading of it, so i will be done in one month. then i have my main novel, that i pick up, when i have done my daily reading of the classic. and sometimes i also read an ebook on my kindle, because i love reading in bed before going to sleep. all lights out and just the ebook and me. after that i can sleep so well. 🙂
3.) do you ever switch bookmarks while you’re partway through a book?
no, i don’t. and i often don’t use booksmarks at all. the thing is, my booksmarks are all over the place and when i am reading a book and need to stop, i pick up the next thing laying next to me. if it’s a bookmark, i use that. if it’s my sticky notes, i use that. if it’s a piece of paper or a postcard i use that. and that stays with me throughout the whole book.
4.) where do you keep the book(s) you’re currently reading?
always next to my bed. i love reading in my bed but the last weeks i rediscovered my couch and i am reading there as well. but i always take the books with me to my bedroom and place them on my drawer. so i have them always close 🙂 my ebook is mostly under my pillow 😀
5.) what time of day do you spend the most time reading?
depends on my day. currently i am very busy at work and before work i have to sit cats for a friend. so i take a walk there every morning and listen to my audiobook. depending on my workload and plans in the evening, i read after work at home. on the weekends i can basically read all day. i love waking up and reading in bed for a while, which isn’t possible right now, but then i read in the afternoon after all my chores are done. in a “normal” week, i read in the evenings after work.
6.) how long do you typically read in one sitting?
this also depends on my day. if i have stuff to do, i won’t read long in one sitting. but on the weekends, after i have done all there is to do, i can read for hours in one sitting. it’s the best thing ever!
7.) do you read hardbacks with the dust jacket on or off?
i disovered hardbacks this year for me. i was always a paperback person, but somehow i had many hardbacks to read and i fell in love with them. they are so pretty! ❤ but i always take the dust jacket off and place it in my drawer, because otherwise my cats would destroy it 😀
8.) what position do you mainly use to read?
half laying 😀 i have a reading pillow which is very good for my back so i use this. but while reading i am slowly sliding down that pillow, so i end up reading laying down 😀
9.) do you take the book you’re currently reading with you everywhere you go?
no i don’t. but it depends. if it’s a normal work day, i leave it at home, because i know, that i won’t be able to read, so i don’t take it with me. if i have an appointment, i always bring my book with me, because you never know, when you’ll have time. the only thing, that’s always with me is my audiobook.
10.) how often do you update your goodreads progress on the book you’re currently reading?
ha, very good question. i try to update it as much as possible. but mostly i end up doing it before i do my www wednesday post. and also after i have finished a book, because i forget to mark it as currently reading. i am lazy. i am a very lazy person 😀 😀 😀
that was my currently reading tag. i won’t tag anybody, because i am busy and lazy. 😀 if you want to do the tag, then please feel free! 🙂
